“Produced exclusively in the 2016 vintage!”
It is part of the selection of single-varietal wines from the estate’s own vineyards: a collection of wines that goes beyond the estate’s traditional production, blazing new trails with grape varieties that are at their best in certain vintages.
The weather was quite unusual in 2018, beginning with very rainy and cold conditions in February and March. While this precipitation was needed, bud break started late. While June and July were ideal, the conditions were quite variable from July 20 to August 23, with sultry heat and often afternoon thunderstorms. The last big storm hit the area end of August some later little rain enabled the grapes to reach their full maturation. At harvest the grapes showed wonderful condition, very fresh and well ripe, giving a classic style wine with plenty of harmony and balance. The quantity were also good. Before the summer we expected to start the harvest at the end of September but the Sangiovese was ready before then in the majority of the territory.
